Cantors lead the assembly in prayerful songs and psalms during Sunday liturgies as well as weddings and funerals. They also are called to share their gift of music by proclaiming the Word of God as psalmist and teaching the assembly hymns and acclamations. A cantor should possess leadership skills, an engaging voice, the ability to sing on pitch and a deep sense of prayerfulness, authenticity and reverence for the assembly’s sung prayer. Ongoing education and training sessions are also provided. Attendance at cantor training sessions and all rehearsals is expected.
